Athletics

On Tuesday 11th July Mrs Rose and Miss Knight attended the North Herts Athletics Finals at Ridlins in Stevenage with their team of 47 children from across Years 2 – 6. It was a busy morning again consisting of track and field events. Thankfully the weather was perfect, cool and dry. We saw some excellent performances from all the children, with a few being commented on from other schools at how well they could run. We narrowly missed first place again this year but came in an excellent 2nd place. Well done team.

On June 13th Mrs Rose and Miss Knight took a total of 47 children to the Hitchin Athletics Tournament. It was a busy afternoon of field and track events. All the children ran, threw or jumped brilliantly which lead to us coming in First place again! Well done team we couldn’t have been prouder of you all.

Tri Golf
On Tuesday 25th April Our Lady School hosted the first ever North Herts Tri Golf Tournament.

Our Year 4's really enjoyed themselves, and showed some impressive skills. Over all we came 4th out of eight schools - well done team!

 Gymnastics

On Friday 7th July 15 children from Year 1 – Year 4 attended the County Finals in Gymnastics at Oaklands College in St Albans. After an amazing opening ceremony where they got to watch a basketball trick player the children set off for the gymnastics arena. They were all excited and glittery and could not wait to get started. The morning started with KS1 performing. They warmed up and produced the best performance yet, all in time and with the music – unfortunately their outstanding routine was not enough to win but they did come in a celebratory 3rd place winning bronze medals and getting their photograph on the stage.


KS2 were in the afternoon, again they all performed some fantastic floor and vault pieces, with excellent body composition and control. They narrowly missed out on a medal place coming in 4th place – well done team.
A huge thank you to the parents for taking and supporting the children during the day, and a huge congratulations to all the children – we could not have been prouder of how you all represented the school.

On the 2nd May we took 22 children across to the Priory School for the Key Steps

Key Stage 2 Team
Gymnastics Competition. It was a busy morning of children arriving at school from 8am to have their hair done and to have a final run through - especially for KS1 team who had to make changes to their routine last minute. All the children were excited as we left for the competition, and what an excellent competition it was. There was an exceptional standard of gymnastics performed by all schools, with some lovely performances. The results were brilliant - Key Stage 2 B team came 2nd, Key Stage 2 A team came 1st and are now going to county finals in July. Key Stage 1 did their best performance to date and came 1st too, another team through to County Finals. Well done teams!
